Summer Mantle & Meeting a Blogger


I finally changed up the mantle...seashells are fun to use :)  



I made the "sea shells" card last year and made it look old :)


 I thought the lantern looks good with shells in it...


Last week I was able to meet, Oliva, from Oliva's Creative Quest blog and sidekick, Jack.  It was a fun few hours of chatting and crafting! Thanks Oliva and Jack!!!

Update on sister....she is still having chemo treatments. I thought she was done, but not for another few weeks. Surgery sometime Sept(?)...

It going to be very HOT & HUMID the next few days around here...my goal is to stay COOL!

I love seashells and starfish! Your mantle looks great with such a nice variety of shells. I have a few I have collected over the years on a shelf but not enough for a whole mantle. I need to get to the beach!
